This playbook will answer a range of questions about the different federal spending bills. To benefit from these funds, you will need to know:
- What are the various bills?
- How much money is available?
- What kind of money is it – grants, loans, contracts?
- What are the restrictions? What can the money be used for?
- How will the money flow from the federal government to state and local governments?
- Who is eligible to get the money?
- What are the potential community benefits?
- How can you influence how the money is spent?
- How can you organize your own community benefit strategy and plan?
- Where can you get more information and technical support?
Because this is complicated, fast-moving work, this playbook will be regularly updated so you can stay up-to-date on the changes over the next 1-2 years. Our goal is to simplify this dynamic policy environment as much as possible. One thing is perfectly clear:
THE SUCCESS OF JUSTICE 40 WILL NOT HAPPEN
WITHOUT STRONG COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT & ADVOCACY.
